    Hi I need help with my mooer tender octaver. I've had it a few months and it's been great, but now it makes this crackling/ ticking noise when I use it. I use a 1spot to power all of my pedals so I took them off and just left the octaver and it still makes the noise. Does anyone know what it might be?

    Try a different power supply and different cables, also with just it in line. Sounds like a grounding issue but it could be the fault of the pedal or the pedal exposing a fault somewhere else in line.

    Zap the PRAM, rebuild the desktop, and trash the preferences.

    Oh, wait, this isn't 1994, and it's not a Mac.

    Maybe take a look inside, see if any metal (jacks for instance) is making contact with any other metal, causing grounding issues.

    Perhaps the jacks have grown a little corrosion. Try exercising the jacks.

    Have you purchased a new phone recently? Installed a new wireless network, or become subjected to any new EM interference lately?
    ( this can be tested by bringing the pedal somewhere else to see if symptoms persist).

    If this pedal has a chip pressed into a socket, try reseating the chip.

    Exercising the engage switch may offer some relief.

    Under warranty? Get it replaced.

    Best of luck sussing this out.
